. there was no class that i knew of that i could recall. i never thought religion was a problem. my methodist or baptist friends or whatever, we were all the same. in any way, that was a big thing. i would never forget. one night we were watching the news and they were talking about if john kennedy got elected, the pope would run the country. i looked at my mom and said, i do not think they know the catholics that we know. with that being said, that was put to rest. my uncle became a big part of the john f. kennedy entourage. he was big. him and teddy were friends. he says, brother jimmy, you are in charge of little brother teddy to make sure he has the oratorical skills. these are in some of the books if you read the memoirs. every time he got down, he would want teddy to imitate to make him feel good. that is what really got me interested. i saw this young, vivacious president, before that i can remember was eisenhower before that, and he was more of a grandfatherly figure. now i see this young person who is a leader of our country that plays football and athletic and swims. he really got m

crisis. so, to say that $13 billion is finally the justice department's getting religion, i'm just not a buyer of that. $13 billion sounds like a lot of money, but to jpmorgan chase who over the past five years has made $75 billion, that net income, he doesn't want to part with it, believe me, but it's not a huge number. particularly if you were to look at what the cents on the dollar is of what they're paying to get out of these liabilities. you know, people who lost money in these mortgages, the people who lost their homes are, you know, the numbers are far larger than $13 billion. this is a number that has been struck as part of a deal that, you know, may or may not be agreeable to most of the parties at the table. but it's not a killer number. >> the wall street journal and others are saying that what the government is doing is a witch hunt. they're shaking down jpmorgan. >> there's no doubt that there was wrongdoing. they wouldn't be at the table negotiating if there was no wrongdoing. and it's just a matter of what price each party is willing to pay or receive. so, a shakedow
